We just completed our third trip to the island and have stayed at Edwards each time. During that time we've had 3 different courtyard rooms...one was an efficiency. This trip we didn't get the kitchenette, but the room was large nonetheless. The a/c worked fine and the room had the unmistakeable "beach" aroma that rooms inevitably get at the beach. I have to say that I prefer this smell to a "febreezed" room. The shower was small but other than that the room was great. The retro decor is always interesting at Edwards. There is a refrigerator in the room which is much larger than the little dorm-sized units you'd see at a chain hotel. So if you want to bring half gallons of milk, 2 liter drinks, or lunch fixings, no worries keeping them cold. EoO is just a few steps away from the Back Porch restaurant which comes in handy after a long day of traveling...sometimes you just don't want to get back in the car! The courtyard is canopied by a big live oak, and has several picnic tables and seating areas to relax. Each room has a small screen porch which is great for enjoying coffee or a snack when the wind isn't stirring and you don't want to mess with insect repellent. Thank you, EoO.
